Islamic views on homosexuality are influenced by the rulings prescribed by the Qur’anand the teachings of Prophet Muhammed(pbuh). Quranic verses and hadith condemn sexual acts between members of the same sex. The Quran cites the story of the “people ofLoot” who were destroyed by the wrath of Allah because they engaged in homosexual acts.
Allah (swt) tells in the Quran “Of all the creatures in the world, will ye approach males, and leave those whom Allah has created for you to be your mates? Nay, ye are a people transgressing (all limits)!” (Ash-Shuaraa, 26:165-166)
Prophet Loot (as) after given the Dawah to fear Allah and obey him, he also specifically warned the people for an evil (homosexuality) which was very despicable from the moral point of view and in which the society of that time was badly involved in. Prophet Loot (as) raised his voice against the evil and shook his nation to give up that evil. Allah (swt) created men so that they may be sexual partner (wives) of men, but blind sexual desires turn men blind. Then he does not hesitate to commit any unnatural act. Only those men indulge in unnatural act, leaving aside their wives, who have transgressed all limits of natural conduct and morality.
As the people were involved in this immoral act and did not fear God, almighty God sent them a punishment. Allah (swt) says in the Quran “We rained down on them a shower (of brimstone): and evil was the shower on those who were admonished (But heeded not)! Verily in this is a Sign: but most of them do not believe” (Ash-Shuaraa, 26:173-174)
Prophet Loot’s community was guilty of shamelessness, in addition to their disbelief, and accordingly it was punished in an appropriate manner that the community was stoned to death through the rain of stone. This is a sign from Allah (swt) as to how he destroyed the community because they did not follow the law of Allah (swt). We all should see the history and take heed from and so that we don’t repeat the mistakes done in the past. If we do not mend our ways Allah (swt) will punish us the way he punished the other communities.
The first two people who were sent into this world were Adam and Eve, who were of the opposite sex. If almighty God wanted to promote gay sex he would have created two males or two females but God created a male and female as it will go accordance to the system designed by God. By this we can understand that gay sex in unnatural.
Section 377 of IPC imposed maximum penalty of life sentence on anybody who has “carnal intercourse against the order of nature” with man, women or animal. It was a 149 year old law enacted by the British overturned.
Homosexual act has been made legal in 115 countries like Europe, majority of America, Middle Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, Russia, China, etc. On the other hand still 80 countries like Most of Africa, Middle East, South Asia, etc, still have the act illegal. In Mauritania, Sudan, Iran, Saudi Arabia & Yeman homosexuality is punishable with death penalty.
The government of all the 115 countries who have made gay sex legal should talk up the issue seriously to remove the moral disorder & moral disease from the country and make there a better place to live in. Homosexuality which is unnatural is required to be condemned with arguments and which are rampant in the society like an epidemic. By making gay sex legal we are challenging the system of Almighty God. People feel that gay sex is good but the truth is it will be very harmful for the society in the long run.
We are the only living beings on the earth with common sense, so we all should use our brain’s and thing whether what we care doing is right or wrong. Do we have to go with the nature or against it? Just ask you’re conscious and then decide!
On the authority of Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (RA), who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (PBUH), say: “He among you, who sees something that is disapproved (of by Allah), should change it with his hand. If he cannot do that, then let him change it with his tongue. If he cannot do that, then let him change it within his heart (by always disliking what is evil or harmful) and that (the last option) is the weakest (or lowest) of faith”. (Sahih Muslim)
We all Muslims in India should raise our voice and feel disappointed against the legalization of Homosexuality in India as Homosexuality is wrong, a sin in Islam. All the laws designed by God are for the benefit of mankind but man does not understand.
On the other hand we see people from other religions and faiths are against it and are raising their voice, the latest coming from Swami Ramdevji. Swamiji has decided to challenge this decision of the High Court in the Supreme Court. A petition was to be filed by Wednesday, the 8th of July.
Some of the common threats of homosexuality are it is harmful for society, it do not reproduce and thus threaten the survival of society, it pose a threat to children, it is a depressing and sad lifestyle, they are obsessed with sex with different partners, it causes AIDS and other diseases which are costly and deadly, it undermines religion and hence stability in society, they want special political rights and it threatens the family.
Homosexuality is a moral disorder. It is a moral disease, a sin and corruption. Humans are not homosexuals by nature. People become homosexuals because of their environments. No person is born homosexual, just like no one is born a thief, a liar or murderer. People acquire these evil habits due to a lack of proper guidance and education. Unnatural sex should not be promoted in the country. Legalizing Gay Sex will be very harmful for the society at large. Making homosexual legal we are messing with the divine guidance.
We need to adopt the life style of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) who came not only for the Muslims but for the entire mankind, as Allah (swt) says in the Quran “Verily in the messenger of Allah you have an Excellent example…” (Al-Ahzab, 33:21)
“God created Adam and Eve and not Adam and Steve”
